The Commercial Times, which does have a solid iPhone prediction history (including the original iPhone), now says that they expect to see three iPhones in June.  One will be an EDGE version, likely for India (where 3G is slow to deploy) and other developing markets which may benefit from lower price points.  Another is everyone’s favorite, the 3G model for Western nations.  The third is a CDMA version possibly for China and…dare we say…Veriz….nope, we aren’t going there (again).  This would be a blow for China Unicom which plans to have a 3G network going in May and is already running iPhone ads. The Chinese populace would probably appreciate a choice between carriers. 

Speaking (again) of choice, we do know that Apple has recently taken steps to make the iPhone more open in the US and available on Tmobile.

Or maybe that third iPhone is really a tablet of some sort?  The Commercial Times also mention that Apple is prepping an initial build of 4 million devices.  Read the translation and see if you can get anything more out of it.
